Hola! Is your child interested in learning a second language? Speaking a second language is such a gift. It stimulates the mind and has shown to improve memory, problem-solving and even higher cognitive skills. In this class, young students will learn using Total Physical Response (TPR) techniques in which students will respond to commands given in Spanish. For example “Pick up your pencil” would be said in Spanish and the student would respond. I also use TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling). This method uses storytelling as a teaching tool. As a class, we will co-create stories in Spanish to facilitate language acquisition. We cover culture and a few countries throughout the year. We will also create “Passports” as we learn about several of the 21 Spanish speaking countries.
Other topics covered: letter sounds, days of the week, months, seasons, date, and weather.2024/2025  TOPICS:
